The flag is blue with a white lozenge nearly touching the edges of the flag and a red C placed in the middle of the lozenge.

Newman Shipping & Agency

This is a dubious flag, since I don't know if the original image was just the logo or not. Anyway, the flag is probably white with the green logo centered, consisting of two adjacent lozenges, forming an offset arrowhead-like shape.

[Unie van Redding- en Sleepdienst]by Ivan Sache

Based in Antwerp, the company provides salvage and pollution services for the Belgian ports, the river Scheldt and further afield.
URS participated, inter alia, in the British Trent case. This tanker was involved in a collision off the Belgian coast in June 1993. URS also participated in the recovery of pollutants and cargo from the wreck of the Cita, which was lost off St. Mary's, in the Scilly Islands, in March 1997.

URS has a light blue flag with letters U R S in yellow placed horizontally.
